ATLANTA (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points, and the New York Knicks outlasted the Atlanta Hawks 113-112 on Sunday in a game between two playoff-bound teams still battling for postseason seeding. The Hawks took their final lead at 112-111 on Joe Johnson's 3-pointer with 1:50 left. Anthony countered with a jumper 10 seconds later for the final margin. Amare Stoudemire blocked a dunk attempt by Atlanta's Marvin Williams moments before the buzzer. Stoudemire started at center in place of Tyson Chandler, who was resting a sore knee. Williams, who led Atlanta with a season-high 29 points, wanted a foul call on Anthony or Stoudemire, both of whom appeared to make contact. The teams combined for 27 3-pointers on 42 attempts.

Comments from the other side - Hawks 4/20

 This was a fun game.   Even though the Celtics lost, I loved how the young guys gave the Hawks starters all they could handle.  I know Pachulia and Horford were out,  but that doesn't compare to the Celtics top 5 players being out.   I think Hawks fans got the message too.  Never saw fans so depressed about a win.  Enjoy today's comments...
